Clotfelter-Samokar has made its mark designing cutting-edge facilities, with our specialty being educational facilities. Our multi-discipline design firm employs an innovative staff of architects, interior designers, landscape architects, project managers, graphic artists and technicians. Providing you the best possible services isn’t a goal, it’s part of our DNA.


Clotfelter-Samokar was built upon several important guiding principles that continue to define who we are and what drives us through every phase of every project:

We will LISTEN to your needs, ideas, and vision; CREATE smart solutions; and DELIVER beyond all of your expectations. That’s the culture we’ve nurtured since we first opened our doors and that permeates every project we undertake.


Jack Clotfelter built a business and made a career of designing quality facilities for over 40 years. His ‘client first’ approach established a philosophical cornerstone for our firm. That same service-oriented culture exists today. Increasing the level of functionality and cost effectiveness of each project are standards that set our firm ahead of the competition.
